BEIJING - The newly built third runway at Beijing's Capital International Airport (BCIA) has passed the examination and acceptance of China's civil aviation authority, and will be put to use on October 29, a report on the CNTA website said. The third runway is part of an expansion project which also includes the construction of a new terminal building covering 420,000 square meters, 100 new aprons, a cargo zone and auxiliary facilities, which would enable the airport to accommodate 60 million passengers and handle 1.8 million tons of cargo each year. The airport's arrival and departure capacity would increase from 80 flights to 115 flights per hour when the third terminal goes into operation in February next year, said BCIA controlling office director Yang Fei.
